Ep 1 Review
After getting this on the Early Access program on Steam from PR OutReach I was and I am very interested in this game. Afterfall Insanity was a great little game but it had some flaws so I was hoping ReConquest would address those issues. It has and it has not.
Being Early Access it is hard to gauge the game's progression as I have been trying to play this and getting frustrated. It is far too dark and no settings to change the brightness is available.
This is bothersome as the first quest requires the player to fight off mutants' in total darkness and when you reach objective more mutants' suddenly spawn in front of you who you can't see which is seriously hampering game play.
Then gamepad support is funky too. Using A on the X360 Controller to run and evade is awkward as you can roll into mutants when you want to get away and X to shoot your pistol which runs out of ammo quickly as you can't see, then it leaves a shotgun on RB! This is more annoying! I want to swap weapons preferably using the Y button.
Please don't get me wrong, this game looks absolutely post apocalyptic and the scene and settings look great albeit it is initially really dark and cumbersome.
This game has so much potential but it is Early Access so I expect these issues will be addressed over the course of development. It will be 4 part episodic content game which sounds intriguing.
It looks better and more destructive the Insanity and starts out fine. Like I said, It has the potential to become a really great game and I look forward to improvements. I really don't like reviewing this game in its current state, however, I feel it is expected.
This game is potentially rewarding and fun and a great with more post apocalyptic settings with better looking characters' and scenes/stories, but in its current condition I can't wait for the development to get moving and make some big changes.
It's worth getting and supporting now and giving feedback, negative or positive but at least it helps the developers get the right game out there as good follow up to Afterfall Insanity. Looking forward to finished chapters and more.
